UPDATED: LG messaging sliders for Sprint and Verizon shown at CTIA
The show hasn't officially started yet, but we already see LG's show stoppers giving publicity to some of the manufacturer's upcoming texting phones. What we spotted on LG's Flickr page are images of two unannounced handsets - one for Verizon and one for Sprint. Last week we exclusively showed you the one for Verizon, called the LG Cosmos VN250 - a Rumor-like device sporting both a side-sliding QWERTY and a traditional num pad on the front. Check here for more detailed info about it.
LG Cosmos VN250 Preliminary Specifications
As seen on the images, the Sprint phone is a vertical QWERTY slider, similar in shape to the Samsung Reclaim. No other information is available about it as of now, but we hope all will become clear pretty soon, maybe even tomorrow.
UPDATE: LG has posted some more info, going that the Sprint phone is called the LG Remarq LN240 and similarly to the Reclaim is made of eco-friendly materials.
UPDATE 2: And now Sprint has taken the time to officially introduce the handset, providing more details and specs. The LG Remarq will be available for purchase starting May 9, for free with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. For those eager to get eco-friendly with the Remarq - you can pre-order it right away. On the specs side of things, the LG Remarq LN240 will pack a 1.3MP camera. Stereo Bluetooth and microSDHC slot. Sprint says that the Remarq is 87% recyclable, it's packaging is fully recyclable and its charger is energy efficient. Also, do not expect to find a manual in the box, as it will be available online.
